We are looking for you!
The Dutch Student Investment Fund is looking for new people! Join us and get involved in the world of investments. Take the opportunity to join DSIF as either a board member or as a junior investor, and become an experienced investor!
Four ambitious students are given the opportunity to run the investment fund. Being board member means that you are the person who, together with your colleagues, run the fund on a day-to-day basis. You will assess business plans, decide whether DSIF is going to invest or not, and help entrepreneurs. Do not worry if you are not knowledgeable about these topics, you will get trainings and workshops from our experienced and professional partners. Also, it does not matter what kind of program you are following, as long as you study at either Saxion University of Applied Sciences or the University of Twente.
Each board member has his or her own set of tasks which need to be carried out and for which he or she is responsible. This results in a total workload of around 10-15 hours per week. For the next college year(s) we are looking for a new Chairman and a new Finance Director, their three main activities include:
Develop a strategy for realizing more dealflow for the fund.
Maintain close contact with startups.
Develop the marketing strategy. Manage contact with stakeholders.
Develop the financial strategy.
Manage financial risks.
Manage the cashflow.
As a Junior Investor in the committee you are of crucial importance to the investment process of the fund, as you are the first person in line to get in touch with the entrepreneurs. During the Investment Process you’ll be helping the entrepreneur in various ways, dependent on the kind of support that the entrepreneur is in need of. For example, this may be by helping the entrepreneur create a business plan or an investor pitch.
Furthermore, as a Junior Investor you’ve got an advisory role in the fund when it comes to actually making an investment. At DSIF we’re aiming for a very diverse team of people. This gives the fund the ability to look at various business proposals from multiple perspectives. That’s the reason why you don’t need to study finance or business to become a part of DSIF.
For next college year we are looking for 4 new junior investors. As you’ll be sharing your workload with 3 other Junior Investors, we expect you to put in 4 to 6 hours a week, making it a very manageable committee to do next to your study.
